Fred was an amazing guide!!!

Our entire day was exceptional. From being picked up right on time to the flexible, friendly and accommodating nature of our guide (Fred), we couldn’t have asked for anything more. We loved that he showed us special neighborhoods, non-touristy spots for views, and even a bakery that was off the beaten path. He also helped us plan the rest of our trip with recommendations for what to see when, how to get there and where to eat. The PCH was beautiful and we felt very safe and cared for the entire way! We had some extra time, and we’re surprised with a quick visit to Cupertino! Thanks for making it a great day, Fred!
